Hunter's Ridge south is in great shape and the recently completed north loop is ready to ride.
Conditions are excellent.

Trail day/s coming up for Fulton and Fine segments to get them open for the season. Bit of water yet along the river in a couple of spots.

Rode both fulton for the first time and hunters ridge for the 2nd yesterday. The trails were in great shape, and the markers were a HUGE help, thank you to whomever does that! A few confusing spots on the south? fulton section, seems to want you to ride up a leaf covered hill...? Though I might have been directionally challenged there :)

There have been a couple of lines through that area. Final (for now) is after crossing the bridge, stay to the right and go up the hill. Turn right at the top and head toward the river. You'll loop counterclockwise around about 1/4 of the bermed turn and head out along the river to follow the trail. After riding the loop on the southern end, you'll return to that same hill and go down it, staying to the right to follow the trail.

Noticed that there are a couple of the arrows and posts that didn't get put up in there. We'll catch those when we put in the signs at Hunters. Glad you enjoyed it. The southernmost end of that trail is like being in northern Michigan.

This was posted yesterday:

Rode Fine Trail tonight, conditions are good with a few sticks down. There are two limbs down in the back half that will need a chainsaw. Will try to rake the back half in a few days, there a lot of leaves down.
Also spent a few hours on the beginning of Fine doing some work today.

Work is continuing on Fulton and Fine parks. Hunters Ridge South is pretty decent and flowy as usual but Hunters Ridge North is a bit overgrown. The TC has tackled a few sections of HR North but I'm sure how far he was able to get.

The bridge has been completed by the city so Hunters is now connected to the rest of WLT without having to ride city streets.

The entire loop is about 6 miles.
